Fun isn't something one considers when balancing the universe. But this... does put a smile on my face.

Under windows, this machine crashes repeatably. It's duplicate does not. Booting Mint and running 8 copies of memtester to max 8 out of twelve threads. I have yet to see just what is crashing. Running this about 48 hours now. WTF! fail dangit! :mario:

Because while the protective shell was broken in half, the wires passing through were undamaged except for one, that had been cut through by the broken shell. And it had been worn through over time. They'd kept using it with the sharp edges dangling until it quit working. Whatever cut and broke the shell did not cut the wires.

But these devices were a transmitter pack connected with a cable to a button pack to communicate with outside or each other. This was not just any cable. It was surrounded by a 3/8 flexible shell (like old metal bx cable but tighter) covered with a rubber sheath. I know exactly what it looks like because somehow one got broken in half. A stainless steel shell broken. I demonstrated the largest piece's strength by hooking it on top of a door and dangling 180# (me). I'll never find out what did that. 2/3

Many many moons ago, I worked as a repair tech for a fast food chain. I kept computer running and repaired electronics like the wireless drivethru. Now we put this new system in to replace the old non-wireless drive thru speaker systems to make things more convenient and the system was getting old. These were a belt pack- headset thing with a quick swap battery design allowing the crewperson to touch a button to release the battery pak right onto the floor while trying to be slick and missing the catch. 1/2

@gudenau The WIKI page is simpler. While it doesn't cover everything, it doesn't go into unnecessary depth either.

If you guys don't use , you're gonna be FUCKED when the apocalypse comes but the Internet wallets are still in tact.

@gudenau Then you'll either have to make one or find a cable wired to add external power. USB devices have their own sleep modes that use little power when idle.

Cops open the hood of their car like this to block dash cams. This is a signal to start filming.

None at all. I merely have an interest in everything about the brain from psychology to neurology. It started as a defense against bullying growing up by observation and collecting papers to read on the various applicable subjects. I have collected a wide range of knowledge but no, I am not a competent authority on it.
I have changed other's minds before based on what I learned but that's an iffy thing.
